Tree

tree

I was reviewing some of my old sketchbooks this morning and came across this tree I sketched several months ago. Mercy, I thought, I really like it! Isn't it funny that we can be so dissatisfied with some of our work one day, then fall in love with it days later!

Lin! I want to stare at this one for hours. Blame it on my state of mind, but i love the melancholy of this painting. I love how you rendered the distance behind the tree. Bravo!!! How long ago did you do this?

I don't even remember this sketch but it is so great! Yes, sometimes I look back at something and it seems so good I wonder if I did it!

It is fun to look back.

That's so true! When we have such a strong idea of what we want a painting to look like, it's hard to like what it turns out to be, but later when we've forgotten the original intent it's beautiful. And this is indeed. So soft and dreamy looking.

It looks like a good place to sit and read a book. It is a beautiful painting.

The colors are wonderful.... All our little painting children have their lovable traits, don't you think?

Beautiful colors and composition! I love the negative space that reveals the sky.
